Comments from the auditors were extremely positive across all areas of the business, including our galvanizing processes, training and awareness, and sales and marketing."

The success of its recent audits has now seen all 14 sites transitioned from the ISO9001:2008 version to the ISO9001:2015 standard, which recognises the policies and systems needed to meet the needs of its customers and regulatory requirements.

He added: "Our clients operate in a variety of sectors across the UK, from construction to agriculture, rail and energy. As a business we strive to provide a high quality, impeccable service at all levels across our sites, and this recognition showcases our ongoing commitment to raising the bar for best practice."
